An event for cupcake lovers: Bake or buy cupcakes to bring -or- just come to eat and help a good cause. Activities include cupcake eating contests, cupcake wrapper decorating, bakers competitions, Hope Heart Institute fundraiser and more. Best of all … it’s FREE.
WHEN: Saturday, April 10, 2010 11am-2pm WHERE: 415 Westlake Ave Seattle, Washington, 98109 WHY: Because who doesn’t love cupcakes? Plus we will have some fun competitions and a fundraiser for Hope Heart Institute
The concept for Cupcake Camp originated in San Francisco and promotes a true spirit of community and sharing, and Cupcake Camps now happen around the world and come in a wide variety of flavors and sizes. The most essential feature of a Cupcake Camp is that it brings together people to share their love of cupcakes!
Cupcake Camp Seattle is presented by Bella Cupcake Couture as a delicious celebration of this small coveted treat. Completely volunteer run and organized in an open and participatory manner, our first Cupcake Camp Seattle raises funds for Hope Heart Institute.
The Hope Heart Institute was founded in 1959 for the purpose of researching reconstructive cardiovascular medicine and their accomplishments include the world’s first successful experimental Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. You may ask if eating cupcakes and a healthy heart go together. Following the rule that sweet treats should be enjoyed in moderation; cupcakes can be the perfect petite indulgence to fulfill ones sweet tooth craving. A little bit of love can make a big difference and everything tastes better when shared.
CupcakeCamp Seattle is a gathering born from the desire for people to share and eat cupcakes in an open environment.
And what better place to have this celebration than at one of Seattles newest venues; 415 Westlake.
